4×4 Friday’s challenge this week is to create an architectural piece. As soon as I saw the theme, I knew I’d be delving into one of my old books about Church architecture. It has thick pages and many coloured drawings. This one is black and white, so I tinted the statues with watercolour pencils and added the vellum quote, some ‘industrial’-style brads and a little bell at the bottom. The wire hanger in blue came last!

I did wonder what conversations these two men might have had… if I hadn’t had that quote to hand, this might have turned out very differently!!! 🙂
